Jesus came to free us from every captivity we face, and he sends us so that he can free others through us. Does your faith compel you to go and follow him like that?

Welcome to Park Church
Reaching out to the world that God loves…
During the winter of 2002, a small number of grateful Christians in Red Bank, NJ began to dream together about how they could share Jesus Christ with high school kids who did not yet know him. They wanted to invite as many people as possible into the light they found themselves glad to be in. This turned into a multi-generational community of Christian faith called Outreach Red Bank (ORB).
In 2014, under the power of God’s Spirit, ORB transformed into Park Church as it found a new home at 31 Park Rd. in Tinton Falls, NJ. Located at the crossroads of major NJ roads, Park Church is situated to be a community for all of Monmouth County. The same mission from the very beginning drives us: to share Jesus Christ with people who don’t yet know him. We’d love to have you join us.

Jesus came to bring good news to the poor, the outcast, the excluded. How can we do today what he did then?
Jesus said that making yourself a neighbor to those in need is not an option...it's what it means to follow him and have life. So how might we be able to be a neighbor by forming friendships across the divide?

About five years ago I came across a book called The Trouble I’ve Seen: Changing the Way the Church Views Racism. God used this book (and many others since then) to begin transforming my understanding of racism in America.
One of the most helpful ideas came in a chapter titled, “Don’t Go with Your Gut,” where author, theologian, and Jesus-follower, Drew Hart, calls Christians to adopt a posture he calls counterintuitive solidarity. To help explain, Hart makes a big claim: “most white Americans (Christian included) have been blind to the racism and oppression that has been so prevalent on this soil for the first 350 years, ever since Jamestown was formed.”
A faint memory from my college days recently came back to me. I was walking down the hall in our library when I overheard a conversation among a group of black students. The young woman speaking was hurt and upset. In fact, she was livid. I didn’t hear enough to understand the total context, but I knew it had to do with race on campus and a recent experience of hers...
Hello parents. As we all know, the last week has been a tumultuous week in our nation - circling around the issues of race and injustice. Issues that we cannot and should not ignore, because of how very important they are. They're important for our nation, for the church, for our church, for our families, for our kids, for you, and for me. Your kids might be wondering what's going on out there, and you might not be completely confident with how to talk to them about it.
